* Manga/{{Naruto}} does this way early, when they're first leaving Konoha for the Wave Country on the mission-that-turned-out-to-be-A. Nobody's taking him seriously, because he's Naruto, so he stabs himself dramatically in the hand. It works. The fact that he heals ridiculously quickly comes to his teammates' attention in connection with this. Of course, Kakashi already knew that, and knew why...

* Manga/{{Naruto}} does this way early, when they're first leaving Konoha for the Wave Country on the mission-that-turned-out-to-be-A. C-ranked-mission-that-turned-out-to-be-A-ranked. Nobody's taking him seriously, because he's Naruto, so he stabs himself dramatically in when he's scratched on the hand. It works. The fact hand by an enemy with a poison weapon, Sakura uses the argument that he heals ridiculously quickly comes needs medical treatment to his teammates' attention in connection suggest they should give up and turn back to Konoha, with this. Of course, Kakashi musing that maybe it's too much for them. Furious at being underestimated, Naruto drives a kunai into the wound to bleed out the poison, insisting that they will carry on with the mission and he will protect the old man Tazuna. He panics comically once Kakashi points out that if Naruto doesn't do something about his now self-inflicted wound he's going to rapidly ''bleed to death,'' although when he treats Naruto's injury he notices that, thanks to Naruto's HealingFactor, it's already knew that, and knew why...starting to close.

* A DrinkOrder can imply this in different ways. For example, some folks consider drinking your whiskey neat to be manlier than having it with a mixer or with a splash of water (in contrast, many argue that a splash of water, preferably mineral water from the same water source used to make the whiskey, brings out the drink's flavor, YourMileageMayVary).

Compare SelfMutilationDemonstration, which is a more literal demonstration of resilience to show off one's regeneration powers, not just to look tough.

** [[SpacePirate Nausicaans]] also deserve a mention, as demonstrated when two of them are shown casually passing them time by throwing darts into each others' chests during another episode of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. This is apparently the norm for their culture as, according to Brunt, most Nausicaan games involve pain.
